## Takt Time Formula

The following formula is used to calculate takt time.

T = AT / U

- Where T is the takt time (time/unit)
- AT the total available time
- U is the total required units of production

To calculate the takt time, divide the total available time by the total required units of production.

## Takt Time Definition

A takt time is defined as the ratio of total available time and the total required units of production.

## Takt Time Example

How to calculate takt time?

**First, determine the total units of demand.**Determine how many units of demand per week a facility needs to produce. For this example, we will say the customers require 1,000 per week.

**Next, determine the total available time.**Measure how many hours of production time the facility has per week to meet the demand. For this example, we will say 40 hours.

**Finally, calculate the takt time.**Calculate the takt time using the formula above. T = 1,000/40 = 25 units/hr.
